Welcome to another week of Christmas inspiration with the Art with Heart team.

This week I’m playing with the new Stampin Blends and matching stamp set, Color Me Happy, which are available for sale from today. Instead of making one of the designs in the Colour Me Happy Kit (which by the way are all so beautiful) I decided to make a Christmas card using one of the bird stamps from the Colour Me Happy Stamp set.

I used four of the Stampin Blends pens: dark cherry cobbler, light cherry cobbler, dark pumpkin pie, and the colour lifter pen to shade my little Christmas bird. The colour lifter pen allows you to remove colour, giving your shading extra depth. Here’s a close-up of my little bird so you can see the shading.

I then cut out my stamped image with a square stitched shapes die and mounted it onto a scalloped square of cherry cobbler, die cut using the layering squares dies. The background DSP is from the wood textures DSP stack, mounted onto a card base made from crumb cake card stock.

Texture was added with some burlap ribbon, touches of nature elements and a sweet little bow made with linen thread. The sentiment is from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set, punched out with the classic label punch.

To see what the rest of the team have made hop back to Claire’s blog and I’ll be back with some more Christmas inspiration next week.
